    He might, but there's no way he would give it to me, he won't even give it to my Fiancee, his granddaughter.

    So what are you guys trying to figure all of this out for? Just to tell the family history? Seems to me, if he is so resistant, then there are probably some issues their that he doesn't want brought up. So it might just be better to let it drop.

    Yeah, either he's a modest man or there's something he'd rather not have people know. I don't see anything really good coming out of forcing the issue.

    What Vorpal said. There are a lot of reasons why he may not want to go into detail about his service. Its even possible that he was guilty of some form of misconduct that he doesn't want his family to know about. Bottom line is, if he doesn't want to talk about it, don't push him.

    If its a matter of preserving the family history, all of that information will be available to you when he dies.
    I'm not giving you my opinion, I'm telling you how it is.
    Can't decide which evil black rifle to buy? My thoughts.

    Or...it may not be. My wife's father died before I ever met her, and he was a Navy vet. She remembered him telling her stories about how he was in the Army for a little while and jumped out of planes, etc. My wife was born in Saigon, and her dad was stationed in Tan Son Nhut for 10 years as a "civilian". When she told me all of this, I informed her that her dad was most likely a spook. It never occurred to her before.

    When I asked my godfather about that airbase, he told me that there were lots of spooks stationed there. My godfather was a green beret and lived with the Montagnards for several years.
